Share Article

Virtual Reality experts, VR Bound release their 2016 Christmas wishlist for virtual reality headsets. Outlining the most budget friendly to the very best on the market.

Full VR Experience - Recommended for tech enthusiasts
HTC Vive

Who’s it for?: Great for adults, businesses and tech enthusiasts
Present Type: Very special main present

The HTC Vive, released in April 2016, has made waves in the Virtual Reality community. Although not first on the VR Scene, and coming in at a higher price, this particular headgear is furnished with some of the highest specifications making it one of the leading in the market. Comfort and performance heightened through careful engineering, this headset is for the users wanting to feel the best experience available today.

“By far the top two contenders are currently the HTC Vive and Oculus rift, it was only narrow market advancements that could set these two headsets apart, along with general user opinion on the two” - Daniel Colaianni, VR Bound


Cost effect VR console experience
Playstation VR

Who’s it for?: Great for teens, playstation owners and families on a budget
Present Type: Main present

As a relatively new contender to the market, the PSVR (Playstation VR) is a great cost effective VR Experience that doesn't use a mobile. Although not offering the same level of immersion as some of the higher end headsets, the PSVR lowers costs dramatically by using the Playstation 4. This saves high costs of having to invest in very high end PC’s as well as the headset.


All round Mobile experience for all users
Daydream View

Who’s it for?: Great for teens, adults and “modern” mobile phone users.
Present Type: Main present

Daydream View offers phone users of all platforms the opportunity to experience VR in a comfortable way. Google’s objective with this headset was to make it as easy and as comfortable to use (which they achieved quite well). When it comes to the mobile headset market, there are lots to choose from but the addition of the Daydream controller adds the layer of interaction that many other headsets fail to bridge.


Robust VR headset for Children
Merge VR

Who’s it for?: Great for young children,
Present Type: Main present or stocking filler

The Merge VR is extremely robust. From dropping the headset from the top of a 10 story building to just general wear and tear, the Merge VR headset has seen it all. If you're worried about investing in an expensive VR Headset for your child, then this headset comes recommended to create any low budget, mobile VR experience.

Low budget, introduction to VR
Google Cardboard V2

Who’s it for?: Any new entry into VR
Present Type: Stocking filler

At the lowest end of the Budget is the Google Cardboard V2. This is bound to keep you and others around you occupied within VR throughout the day. This headset may not offer a whole lot in terms of features, but it does provide a novice level expectation of what can be achieved through Virtual Reality.
